Back to Nature

It’s been a while since I wrote my last post; over the past few weeks I completed all of my Leaving Certificate State Examinations. These exams mark the end of my time in secondary school, and now I can move on to bigger and better things. I can’t believe that I am finally done with school! Now that I don’t have the pressure of the exams squeezing down on me, I can get back to doing some of the things I love: taking pictures, playing music, and working on various technological schemes! Here are some of my most recent pictures;

St.Patrick’s Day

Last monday, a very special Irish celebration took place; St.Patrick’s Day. This is the national day of celebration for our patron saint, and it takes place each year on the 17th of March.

Strangely enough, it sometimes seems to me that some of the people in America celebrate the day with more gusto than the Irish…

In my town a carousel was assembled on the main thoroughfare for the bank-holiday weekend and a good few of the landmarks in the area were illuminated with green light!

New Year Holdiays

Once again I am enjoying a pleasant holiday in Switzerland! My family and I celebrated the new year with some friends and it was quite an event. Today we went on a small walk up to the ruins of an old castle, which is situated not too far from where we are staying
